Know how to deal with a slacker boss.

Some slacker bosses dump all their work on their subordinates, making sure it’s done, while others fail to plan or deliver the work expected of them.

How to deal with them

If your boss delegates all their work to you be assertive and say no. You can talk to them or involve HR or your boss’ manager if need be. Tread carefully if you decide to talk to your boss about it.

“Instead of talking about what you don’t like them doing, tell them what you’d like them to do and how it would benefit you, your boss, the division and ultimately the company,” Holburn says.

“Instead of saying you hate that they’re never in the office, suggest how much better it would be if you could touch base with them once a day.”
